Quick & Easy Peanut - Coconut Laddu


My "cooking with five or less ingredients" themed post for today in BM#8 is going to be these yummy laddus that can be prepared in a jiffy. I used to follow the Indian cooking website 'Bawarchi' almost religiously in my initial days of cooking. Not just following but used to try the recipes that caught my attention. Some of the recipes I learnt thus have found a permanent place in my kitchen. This delicious peanut laddu learnt a dozen years ago is one such recipe though I stay away from it now just because of the calories. :) It is simple and quick compared to the traditional version and just perfect one for a novice cook.
  
Ingredients: (For 15 small sized laddus)
1 cup roasted and skinned peanuts
1/4 - 1/2 cup fresh, grated coconut
1/2 cup jaggery powder

Method:
Combine all the ingredients and grind into a coarse mixture using a food processor. Take a fistful of ground mixture and shape it into a laddu (a round ball). Repeat the step with the remaining mixture.
